Cashback

An art student breaks up with his girlfriend. in the aftermath he finds himself unable to sleep and so gets a job in an all-night supermarket. There he meets a bunch of "wacky characters" and hilarious hi-jinx almost entirely fail to ensue. Instead the lead character mostly self-examines in irritatingly pretentious voice-over and dull flash-backs to his youth.

Oh, and he discovers an ability (imagined) to be able to stop time. He uses this ability to half-strip the female customers in the shop so he can draw them in the nude. This gets a lot of coverage on the box despite being at most 4 minutes of the 102 minute running time. I expected as much going in.

Will appeal to people that like looking at unclad women if they skip straight to scene 4 on the DVD, though they'll still probably want to turn the sound off (ultra-pretentious voice-over about life and beauty and his childhood) or those that think extended voice-overs and unnecessary slo-mo scenes make a film intellectual.

Still not the worse film I've ever seen though.

Cold Topic

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree
